Description

Node.js, HTML5, Windows 8 Apps, PhoneGap - it seems like JavaScript is everywhere these days! If you have never really paid much attention to it (or managed to get by with a bit of copy-and-paste?) then this is the session for you. Building on your knowledge of languages such as C/C++, C#, and Java we will take a look at the fundamental concepts and quirky parts of this loosely typed dynamic-object language that throw many first timers into a recursive loop. You will walk away with a keen interest and desire to dig further into the language.
